Itzic wrote continuously to the Pope, for 30 years, without having an answer!
One day, the Pope pays a visit to Israel.
Everything's fine... the Pope meets the Prime Minister, they discuss, plan all kinds of collaborations and partnerships, etc.
At one point, the Prime Minister says:
-Your Excellency, before leaving, I would have a request!
-Tell me, says the Pope.
-You know, here, in Israel, there's a man called Itzic... For 30 years he keeps writing you a letter every day, asking you to give him audience. You never gave him an answer which means you refused him every time. In the spirit of Christianity, wouldn’t you like, since you're in our country, to receive him, to see what he wants? You know, it's a pity! He claims he just wants to talk to you! Please! Only 5 minutes...
He's a serious man, he pays his taxes and he wrote to the Government a statement of a few dozen pages in this matter. He also wrote to the local newspapers, radio, televisions... It's a bit too much hype and, if possible, we would like you to support us in this matter, to calm the situation a little.
-All right, all right! the Pope agrees. Call him here!
Itzic is led into the room, he kisses the Pope's hand and says:
-Your Holiness, I have been trying for 30 years to meet you! I have a big problem and I need your help!
-Tell me, Itzic! I'm listening...
-You know, I own a restaurant... Big, beautiful, inexpensive... Good food, good drink... everyone comes to eat at my place.
-Well done Itzic, you're showing entrepreneurial spirit!
-Yes, but I inherited the restaurant from my father!
-Very nice! You took the reins of the business, developed it...
-Yes, but my father had it from his father!
-Very well, Itzic, I understand! It was a family business, you all have worked hard...
-Yes, but my father's father had it from his father!
-Itzic, I understand! The trade is a family trait... Very nice!
-Yes, but also my father's father's father had it from his father...
-Itzic, you're exasperating me! I do not understand!... How far do you want to get me? At the time of Christ?
-Exactly! See, you have understood it perfectly! It's about “The Last Supper”! No offense, but it remained unpaid!
